Description/Count
Description 2005-8-28rE Human remains consisting of a well preserved skeleton, buried in the flex position with the head and knees facing north. The head was beside a stack of partially baked bricks, f62, to the east, while the hips were to the west. More complete exposure of the human remains reveals that the individual was a mature adult. The sciatic notch is medium to wide, but the skull is large and relatively robust. One well-worn incisor, retrieved from the matrix surrounding the mandible, suggests that the individual was at least middle-aged, if not older. [Input file: Q302JW1.J / Q302JW1.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2005-8-29jW Exposed all extant bones that could be identified. Photographed the body and its context, v22. Attempted to photograph body to prepare a Freehand drawing of the layout of the grave. There was not enough light to allow good definition, so we will try again on P831, using reflectors. [Input file: P829JW.J / P829JW.-J]

Deposition
H99.NDepostn 2005-8-29jW faB suggested that some of the characteristics of the body (bones darkened but not charred) and its manner of burial (flexed position in a marked grave) could be explained by the following: He hypothesized that the BA temple burned in early Akkadian times. Possibly one or more people were trapped in the ruins and suffocated. Their bodies were heated in the fire to a temperature less than 300 degress, which darkened the bones. During the process of cleaning the site the ashes and burned bricks were thrown onto the terrace to serve as fill for a new layer of bakhia. When the body was discovered it was buried in the usual manner for the time which must have been in the ash with grave goods and a simple marker of stacked burned bricks.
